West Seattle Tuesday: Delridge Produce Coop Trivia Night; tide; transit; schools …

Though the weather is gray, local gardens are bright – so here’s the orange peony blooming in Paul Francis‘s West Seattle backyard, which he and his wife found so striking, they wanted to share the photo. (Thank you!) On with the rain-or-shine daily highlights – after one more photo:

LOW-LOW-LOW TIDE: Even lower than yesterday (which is when Monty photographed those mussels – thanks!) – today, it’s down to -3.8 at 12:05 pm; beach naturalists will be out at Constellation and Lincoln Parks starting at 10 this morning.

TRANSIT OF VENUS VIEWING: If the sun gives a hint of appearing, so that we’d be able to see Venus crossing (but don’t look AT the sun!) you should be able to find NASA Solar System Ambassador Alice Enevoldsen at Solstice Park – details are on her website.

TUESDAY NIGHT VOLUNTEER FRENZY @ WESTSIDE BABY: 5:30-7:30 pm tonight – our recent story on WS Baby’s added volunteer opportunities includes info on how to pitch in.

LIVE ART BASH: At Mind Unwind in the Admiral District. 6-9 pm – don’t work on your project/idea alone, come collaborate/co-conspire!

DELRIDGE PRODUCE COOPERATIVE TRIVIA NIGHT @ SKYLARK: $5 suggested donation to help DPC work toward a healthy-food store on Delridge. And of course, the trivia topic is … food! 6:30 pm at Skylark Café and Club (3803 Delridge Way SW).

WEST SEATTLE HIGH SCHOOL PTSA: Last meeting of the year for the WSHS PTSA; join them for a look back and ahead, 7 pm, school library.

MADISON MIDDLE SCHOOL CONCERT: Madison has two concerts this week – first up, the band performs tonight in the school commons (45th/Spokane), 7 pm.

Even more (for today/tonight, and beyond!) on the calendar.

    another Tuesday event: reading the Seattle times today, I saw an article about a movie that was playing at SIFF today. then I realized that it was the movie that I had read about being filmed in WS and other places:


    of course the WSB keeps us all so well informed.

      Hi – do you have a link? I can only find shows from last month and then a mention that it will return to Seattle for a “regular run” (where, I haven’t found yet) on June 8th. – TR

    Hi- I tried to edit my comment to correct the many errors and include that link (but the edit didn’t take).

    It is NOT playing today at SIFF- it already did (to sold out shows). but is coming out in theaters Friday:

    Wow! An orange Peony is so unusual!

    I saw an otter taking a fish up from the water up to Alki Ave West of Cactus while a crow kept dive bombing trying to steal his fish!

      Rob – Courtesy of Gary Jones, I have a photo of that otter, coming up in a bit – folks have been sharing low-tide photos and we went out too, but I think we’ll just have to start with a few and add more later! – TR

Sorry, comment time is over.
